The Love Bug
Update: Torvalds says Lih-nix! :o)
I only say it the way I say it because that's how one of my exes said it.
I never heard of Linux until I met Josh, and he calls it Lih-nux so that's why I do! *laughs* I'm such a sheep. Not a clue what Linux is at the end of the day tho!
I hope you're not a sheep hun ;)
When Josh is doing something on the PC and I can't tell what it is, I say "what are you up to on there?"
And he says "I'm doing blah-blah with Linux"
And I say "oh, geeky stuff".
*laughs* There's no point in him explaining anything like that to me!
They're fully into it here, and all I hear is "blah, blah, blah"
In some versions of Linux there was a sound configurator .. sndconfig. When successeful it played a soundifle: "Hello, This is Linus Torvalds, and I pronounce Linux, Linux"
That is where I got it from.
Links to audio
I've never heard him speak before.
I don't even know who he is :P
I just like to be completely different
I think I'm going to start pronouncing linux like leenux. That will be fun.
Heheh. Bill and I say it differently. I'm a lih-nux, he's a Lie-nux. :D
